I’ve Got the Funky Book Blues…

13 Sep

You ever have one of those weeks.  You know, the one where you are just in a reading funk.  the book is interesting, mildly entertaining, but somehow you get stuck.  You just can’t seem to finish it.  It sits on your nightstand (Finally!  I have a freaking nightstand after 8 weeks on backorder!).  It sits there and begs to be finished.  And yet, every time you pick it up and start to read something distracts you, like sleep, or a headache, or J needing something (he’s very needy with his free time).  You put it down after only reading ~10 pages.  All in all, it ends up taking forever to read a 400 page book.  Especially when in the past you have read a 400 page book in a day. Just like that…

I’m having one of those weeks.  I just can’t seem to get over the reading funk.  I contemplated joining a readathon starting this Thursday, but I just can’t get over this funk.  I have so many great looking books I want to get to.  They sit on the bookshelf next to my reading (and everything else) chair and cry out to me: Read me!  Review me!  Pass me along to another deserving reader!  And yet, they’re still there, because I can’t get through this stinkin’ book.  But I’m not ready to give up on it.  I only have 100 pages left.  I am determined to finish.  Even if I only read 10 pages a night…  that’s only 10 days, right?  I should get to reading now…  but there’s that style blog I was reading and my Google Reader is getting a bit out of control.  Damn you distractions!
